for tuning in. tonight's lead, no hiding from biden. for months mitt romney and paul ryan have been running from their records, hiding their extreme far right agenda behind platitudes and big promises, trying to pin them down on specifics was like trying to nail jello to the wall. but that all stopped last night. we'll talk about all of it in the show tonight, how vice president biden took the fight to paul ryan on issue after issue. on taxes, on medicare, on abortion, on their plan to privatize social security and to gut medicare. joe biden simply dismantled the romney/ryan world view. but also talk about how the right wingers are trying to make a big deal out of joe biden's smile. so what? i would have been outright laughing in paul ryan's face. joe biden was fed up and who could blame him? >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of malarkey. >> and why is that so? >> because not a single thing he said is accurate. >> this is a bunch of stuff. >> what do you mean a bunch of stuff? >> it's simply inaccurate. >> it's irish. >> thanks for the translation. okay. >> malarkey. a bunch of stuff.
in kentucky. less than three hours until biden versus ryan. the stakes couldn't be higher. both sides are pumped up. paul ryan seems especially pumped up. >> before too long, we could become as a saudi we were never intended to be. we could become a society where the net majority of americans are makers, not takers. 70% of americans want the american believe. they believe the american idea. >> ready to rumble. watch out, uncle joe. actually, "time" magazine released these photos today showing congressman ryan pumping iron last december, not exactly the images he wants out the night before he needs to prove that he's ready to be a heartbeat away from the presidency. ryan's workout routine probably won't come up tonight but his macho vision for the country will and it should. ryan and romney are pushing a radical remaking of the social contract that americans have relied on for many decades. it's a investigation that includes a budget where 62% of the cuts come from the poor. cuts to medicaid, cuts to food stamps, pell grants, all while cuts to the defense department and oil industry co

. >> congressman ryan? >> i want to thank you as well, martha. danville, kentucky, centre college. i want to thank you, joe. it's been an honor to engage in this critical debate. we face a very big choice. what kind of country are we going to be? what kind of country are we going to give our kids? president obama, he had his chance. he made his choices. his economic agenda, more spending, more borrowing, higher taxes, a government takeover of health care. it's not working. it's failed to create the jobs we need. 23 million americans are struggling for work today. 15% of americans are in poverty. this is not what a real recovery looks like. you deserve better. mitt romney and i want to earn your support. we're offering real reforms for a real recovery for every american. mitt romney, his experience, his ideas, his solutions is uniquely qualified to get this job done. at a time when we have a jobs crisis in america, wouldn't it be nice to have a job creator in the white house? the choice is clear. a stagnant economy that promotes more government dependency, or a dynamic growing economy that promotes
show. and let's start with this. congressman ryan as well as the chairman both trying to set the stage for tonight. let's listen. >> joe biden's been on will stage many times before. this is my first time. so, sure, it's a nervous situation. because joe biden is one of the most experienced debaters we have in modern politics. >> this is miss firhis first ti. joe biden's been doing this since the 1800s. he'll do a solid job. >> so when you listen to this, the base was pretty upset last night. you were quite passionate after the debate. will biden bring the old meat ax tonight? >> i don't think vice president biden will win or lose the election tonight, but he can reset the tone. hear's what joe biden has to do. forget paul ryan. it's the agenda. it's who these people are and what they want to do to this country. and there's nobody more equipped to step to the plate for the democrats than joe biden who knows the agenda of the democrats and the progressive movement in this country. where does paul ryan stand on his own budget that was passed twice? think about paul ryan. he has to go to t

. paul ryan's home turf. going into the debate, the marching orders issued by democrats loud and clear, be aggressive and don't let congressman ryan go unchallenged, as the president did in his first debate with romney. >> a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. >> i think the vice president very well knows that sometimes the words don't come out of your mouth the right way. [ laughter ] >> for ryan, the larger mission at least at the first ten-minute mark of the debate was to avoid being steamrolled while defending the controversial stances from governor romney. >> you weren't asked basically why i'm pro life. it's not simply because of my catholic faith. that's a factor of course. it's because of reason and science. >> life begins at conception. that's the church's judgment. >> i refuse to impose it on equally devout christians and muslims and jews. i refuse to impose that on others unlike my friend here, the congressman. >> the vice president dominated the night, handing out smiles and smackdowns. just take a look at the he

. thursday's debate between vice president joe biden and paul ryan was a substantive contest between two men who were well briefed and on their game. conventional wisdom was twofold. biden needed to calm democrats. he needed to set the stage for his boss to regain his footing during his second debate with mitt romney this tuesday. i think biden accomplished that mission. i think what made the difference was that biden was aggressive, uninhibited with preoccupation by preserving his own image and adept at leveraging his stature. the single best exchange biden wasted no time for calling out ryan for his apparent hypocrisy when it comes to stimulus funds. >> look at the $90 billion in stimulus. the vice president was in charge of seeing this. $90 billion in green pork to campaign contributors and special interest groups. >> i'm not allowed to show letters. go on our website. he sent me two letters saying, by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsin. we sent millions of dollars. you know what -- >> you did ask for stimulus money. >> sure he did. >

, a seasoned debater, will face off against congressman paul ryan who's making his debut on the national debate stage. the vice president has more experience, but polling shows his opponent has the popularity advantage. a new pew poll -- >> wait, wait, i don't understand. >> what? >> i've read that everybody hates paul ryan. >> no, no, no, i've told you, he's adorable. a new pew poll -- that is just not true. >> he's mean. he wants to throw granny off a cliff. >> now you're playing it. >> steve schmidt, this is shocking. >> come on, you two, we're not that dumb. >> i've heard paul ryan is just mean. >> let me add something to this. a new pew poll shows a majority of voters view the vice president unfavorably by a 51%-39% margin. for congressman ryan, it's more evenly divided, 40% view him unfavorably. expectations for biden's performance tonight in kentucky are also fairly low which is perhaps an advantage. 40% say they expect ryan will do a better job in the debate. 34% for mr. biden. >> you know, we go into this debate, mark halperin, with expectations low for the democrat. last time they wer
>>> good morning. combative and confrontational, joe biden and paul ryan come out swinging in their one and only vice presidential debate. >> with all due respect, that's a bunch of ma larky. >> mr. vice president, i know -- mr. vice president, i know you're under a lot of duress to make up for lost ground. >> but without a clear winner, did the debate matter? >>> dire threat. defense secretary leon panetta issues a chilling warning about computer hackers. a scenario he describes as a possible cyber pearl harbor that could be as destructive as the 9/11 attacks. we're live at the pentagon. >>> and hello, brooklyn. the legendary barbra streisand takes the stage in her hometown for the very first time. ♪ beneath the moon, the stars and under the sun ♪ >> a homecoming concert decades in the making today, friday, october 12th, 2012. >>> from nbc news, this is a special edition of "today," decision 2012, with matt lauer and savannah guthrie. live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. >>> and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm matt lawer. >> good morning,
the romney/ryan campaign raised last night in milwaukee. we look at how the money will get put to work. topping the political headlines, a whole new round of fire on the sunday morning talk shows over -- the debate. tell you how nbc's "meet the press," senior obama campaign adviser robert gibbs conceded the president could have done better and also took aim at governor romney. >> it's not rocket science to believe that the president was disappointed in the expectations that he has for himself. but, look, i think part of that was because as i said earlier, we met a new mitt romney. speaker gingrich was pretty eloquent in running during the primaries in saying that mitt romney will say absolutely anything to get elected. >> former speaker and republican candidate newt gingrich said this morning that president obama has no excuse. >> the president of the united states had 90 minutes. now, if he had done his homework and actually prepared and actually studied romney, why didn't he say it? i mean why didn't he take romney head-on? the job of the president is supposed to be competent and be
for whoever wins the white house. topping our political headlines right now, though, paul ryan campaigning in the battleground state of ohio. congressman ryan rallying voters in youngstown this morning. >> your share of the debt has gone up to $51,000 for every man, woman, and child in america. a 45% increase in the individual burden of debt to every single american. we're heading in the wrong direction. >> mitt romney is also in ohio today. we'll have a live update from the trail in just a moment. president obama, we should note, has no public events today. he is in virginia, though, but he is prepping for tuesday's debate. vice president joe biden has a pair of fundraisers in the northeast, one in connecticut, another in new york city. and also a new development concerning illinois congressman jesse jackson jr. sources now telling nbc news that the federal prosecutors along with the fbi have launched a criminal investigation into the democratic lawmaker's finances, including possible misuse of funds monitored by congress. more on all of these stories throughout the next hour. >>> first,
that the cuts in medicaid that have been proposed in the ryan plan has affected a lot of the races. because as families in america, we try to take care of our parents. that effects moms. i think that effects women really a lot. they see that and they say, i'm not for that. am i wrong on that? >> as much as we've been talking about women's issues, in a lot of the races, what these women are running on is, like you said, economic populism. it's the core of elizabeth warren's message. it's the core of the message in north dakota. so in a sense, economic populism shades over into women's issues because women end up being the person in charge of caring for ailing fam members, being the person in charge of health care for their children. so they know very viscerally what it would mean to lose medicaid which is paying for the nursing home of, you know, of their ageing parents. >> it doesn't sit well. >> in my column i talked about after the debate, for all of the bad news, the one thing i notice if you counted how many times the president said education and health care, women voters are more likel
of wisconsin for the recall, but he really hated teachers and people like paul ryan. he just wants to push grandma over the class, future maybe if she's lucky, and little tables and beds. i mean, this is what they want people to think of really incredibly good and intelligent conservatives. and it is so over-the-top ludicrous. now, barack obama is the opposite of all those things. he loves puppies. u.s. people. he loves rainbows. and he is a total romantic. this man knows how to wine and dine his wife. unfortunately for us usually on our tax dollars. and he can do no wrong, even after this ridiculous record, the incredible damage has been done to the united states. none of it matters because the infatuation has turned into a full-blown affair that the media has had with him. now, i know we'll have audience participation at the end of the program, but as far as i'm concerned, you should feel perfectly welcome to user noisemakers to let the world know how you feel when we give our finalists to 2012 dishonors knuckle draggers award. here we go. first nominee of the night his former cnn corres
